CHERISH NO RESENTMENT

To seek a higher sense of happiness is indeed a right desire. Christian Science teaches mankind how to gain a better understanding of God, and so supplies a higher sense of harmony. "God, good, being ever present, it follows in divine logic that evil, the suppositional opposite of good, is never present." These words are to be found on page 72 of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.

The alert student of Christian Science is zealously working to gain a greater understanding of God's ever-presence and to reflect the Christ-spirit more and more each day. This leaves him no time to stop and look over past grievances or to indulge in resentment. Sometimes resentment is found lurking remotely in one's thinking, masquerading in some almost unrecognizable garb, and its presence, if sanctioned, may stultify, for the time being, one's most earnest endeavor. But Mrs. Eddy states in her Message to The Mother Church for 1902 (p. 19), "The Christian Scientist cherishes no resentment;" and she adds on the same page, "Brethren, even as Jesus forgave, forgive thou."
